What is a wrinkle relaxer?

Also known as injectable neurotoxins, wrinkle relaxers are used to treat and prevent fine lines and wrinkles on the face. They are typically used to soften forehead lines, crow’s feet around the eyes, and vertical lines between the brows. This procedure at Peak Plastic Surgery Center in Denver, CO typically takes between 10 – 15 minutes and does not require any downtime. These products are strategically injected directly into the muscles responsible for the wrinkles. Over the course of 10 – 14 days, the muscles begin to relax and reveal a rejuvenated appearance to the skin. There are additional uses for line-softening neurotoxins, including jawline slimming, gummy smile, lip flip, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), and softening lines in the neck.

How do wrinkle relaxers work?

No matter the brand, wrinkle relaxers are injected in the same manner into the same muscles. They both work to reduce specific muscle activity, which improves and prevents fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face. During a thorough consultation at our Denver, CO facility, our team will better be able to determine which wrinkle relaxer option is ideal for you and your aesthetic goals.

What does maintenance of wrinkle relaxers look like?

Injectable neurotoxin results are not permanent and typically last between 3 – 4 months. Over time consistent patients may be able to extend periods between treatments or decrease the number of units used. Results will be seen after one single treatment; however, they need to be continued on a consistent timeline (every 3 – 4 months) to continue to see results.

What can I expect during my appointment?

Our physician assistant will do a thorough consultation to discuss which wrinkle relaxer is right for you. She will assess your face by having you animate and assessing which muscles are responsible for the wrinkles. Injections will then be performed, which is quick and relatively painless. Results will start showing up within 3 – 5 days but expect full results in two weeks. It is recommended to avoid exercise for 24 hours following the procedure. Since bruising is possible, it is best to wait two weeks prior to any important events.
